love the Dylan Thomas quote ;-)
It was too easy. I couldn't resist
Agree 100% with the writer. The upheaval is unccesary to say the least.
Delays are good, unless it gets delayed indefinitly.
But this ain't a delay because of the game not being finished, it's done, it was meant to be sent to pressing plants but for whatever reason the game hasn't been pressed in Europe and now we have a delay. If anything this is Warner Bros problem but people are giving Techland the stick.
I say 20% off on the disc version seems fair.
For what? BEcause you had to wait a few weeks? Ridiculous. Thats like saying the new Audi Q7 should be 20% off cos its only releasing in you area 6 months after europe
20% off an Audi is a huge discount.. ;)
Just get over it. Just buy it and download it on steam and play and have fun. It's just one time. This doesent happend every time a game comes. I allso rather wanted it on the disk to trade in later meaby but since ive waited so long for this game i want the CODE fast so i can download it on steam this time.
Listen to this guy. He has the right of it.
I looked over the reddit and twitter links provided, can't say I saw any 'furor' as the title suggests. Just the odd comment here and there.
There was an article, yesterday I think, about many people canceling their preorders.
I saw someone on PS4 Twitch playing it yesterday. It kinda looked like Dead Island with climbing.
I mostly agree, but I'd say Dead Island with climbing, a day/night cycle, and enemies that change according to the time of day.
As is the norm. People will go mad over a delay, not knowing that it may end up better for it.
I'm only slightly miffed as it comes out at almost the same time as The Order 1886. I'm getting both but I'll probably play The Order first.
I'll just wait it out. this give me the opportunity to see reviews , bugs etc for those who have played it. Anyways Grim Fandango is coming out around the same time, and I'd really like to check that one out .
I think its not just '‘unfairness’ that other people are getting it first ', its the fact the nearly a month delay (Why so long after the US while they said a short delay, hinting of only a few days) and the reasons for this delay which seem a bit .... umm lets say just 'silly'
Zaid Kriel (Zaid) really needs to get a clue with his comment "And that’s what people are really upset about, the ‘unfairness’ that other people are getting it first and they have to wait. It’s a ridiculously immature attitude. The tantrum is akin to a 6-year-old getting upset, because mom gave his older sister her ice-cream first and they had to wait 20 seconds while the ice-cream truck guy made another.." That is a totally FALSE and unfair comparison... First, calling people "ridiculously immature" is really mature on his part.(and he gets paid for this) Second, in your comparison you say "mom gave his older sister her ice-cream first" hmm... but then they would have been "paid" for at the same time. NOT months apart. Third, can you explain what world you live in where 20 seconds is the same as 30 days? Again by your skewed reality? Zaid Kriel says "What is it, exactly that you think you are losing as a result of this game getting delayed? Money? Time? What, exactly? Please, explain, because I can’t see what it is. Back in the day, it wasn’t unusual to wait weeks, even months for a game to come the EMEA territories. Waiting a few weeks is nothing." You can not compare the two as they are two totally different scenarios now. one, being that the version of the game not the territory as EMEA are getting it digitally. two, it's a fairness to the dedication the people who paid months ago to get the game and show support get LESS the "billy" logging on the day of release and getting it instantly. Third, the "back in the day" delay you speak of was not because of poor management it was due to licensing laws, language translations and other factors. NOT one company has waited 1 week before the date to announce a delay let alone to to know that they have known for weeks about the impeding delay. and to apologize they give ALL the "be a zombie" for free. why? as the digital down loaders are again losing NOTHING. Zaid Kriel said "And if you really are that desperate to play it, why not get the digitally downloadable version. It is the same game. Honestly, this entire debacle is a waste of the word debacle." Funny as you are slamming those who say they are doing this.
